E. J. Moeran
Ernest John Moeran began to compose already during his schooldays at Uppingham, where music has always been enthusiastically cultivated. As with many other English composer, his original work goes hand-in-hand with an enthusiasm for native folk music ; that of Norfolk, where a good part of his life has been spent, has always attracted him.

Why Domestic Service? By a Male Cook General
Most men regard neither poetry nor domestic service with much enthusiasm. Is this attitude reasonable or not ? This afternoon two men who have had the courage to break away from the customary points of view and take a line of their own will talk about the excitement they find in their work.
A Commentary by Major H. F. FAUDEL-PHILLIPS on the Competition for the Edward, Prince of Wales Cup from Olympia
(Copyright. See notice on page 59)
Last year the broadcast was given of the jumping for the King George V Challenge Cup ; this year the event chosen is the Edward, Prince of Wales Challenge Cup which was won outright by Great Britain in 1928 and represented by the Army Council for perpetual competition.
Whereas the competition broadcast last year was for jumping by a military officer of any nationality in uniform, the competition to be broadcast today is for jumping over the course by teams of three officers of the same nationality in uniform, and they go twice round. Only one team of three officers from each country can compete in any one year, and only horses belonging to officers or Governments may be ridden.

'The Mobilising of Public Opinion'
The Lord ELTON
Hilda Dederich began to learn the piano at the age of six and within ten years was giving recitals at the Wigmore Hall. She studied at the Royal College of Music and the Tobias Matthay School, at both of which institutions she is now a professor.
Booth Tarkington's story has been adapted in many dramatic forms. As a straight play, it was produced as Beaucaire by Richard Mansfield in New York in 1901, and under its full title by Lewis Walter (and nobody who saw this fine romantic actor is likely to forget him in the part) at the Comedy Theatre, London, during the same year. A musical version was done at the Prince's Theatre in 1919, with Maggie Tcyte as Lady Mary Carlisle , and a radio version in October, 1934.
It was in this production that
Margaret Lauder stepped out of the ranks of the Revue Chorus to play the heroine, in which role she will again broadcast. Henry Ainley 's talented son, Richard Ainley , will play the name part. Among those who will play their original parts are Stuart Robertson as. Winterset and Jan van der Gucht as Molyneux. Beaucaire's songs will again be sung by Mark Raphael , who acquired a French accent especially for the production. A newcomer to radio light opera will be Elizabeth Mooney whose voice is already well known to Empire listeners.
' Monsieur Beaucaire ' will be broadcast again tomorrozo in the Regional programme at 6.30
